4 Reasons to Maintain your Trane Furnaces Before Winter

A Trane furnace is a forced-air heating system that uses natural gas or propane as its fuel source. The furnace heats air through a burner and distributes the heated air through a duct system. Different furnaces are available in the market; each model has various features and capabilities. Before another harsh winter storm arrives, it’s crucial to get your furnace in its safe and energy-efficient working condition.

 

Poor insulation and dirty filters can affect your furnace’s efficiency during the off-season, and the last thing you would want on your winter checklist is a malfunctioning furnace. By winter, you may have an uncomfortable home with uneven and inefficient heating.

 

Here are four reasons to heat and maintain your Trane furnaces before the cold season:

1. Finding What Needs Repairs

The most obvious reason to maintain your furnaces before winter is to ensure it’s functioning well. Even if you conduct a test run with your furnace and it seems in good condition, having a professional inspect it is still a good idea. That way, you can adequately prepare for worst-case scenarios that could lead to emergency repairs in the most crucial times.

2. Extending Your Heating System’s Lifespan

Most modern home heating systems have air filters behind a vent grille mounted on the wall or a filter embedded in the system. Whichever filter you have installed in your home, it’s crucial to change it regularly. While others change it every three months, you may need to replace it more often if you live in dry, dusty areas. At the same time, cleaning and replacing your Trane furnace’s filter can help keep out harmful particles while extending its lifespan.

3. Avoid Expensive Mistakes

When the temperatures outside drop to subzero, the last thing you want is a malfunctioning heating system. Due to your home’s rapid temperature drop, you can only pile on several clothing layers without indoor heat. Instead of layering several blankets and sweaters, it’s crucial to maintain and ensure your furnace is heating before winter hits. That way, you won’t have to worry about rapid temperature drops and running out of clothes.

4. Increase Safety

You’d also want to avoid gas leaks from a malfunctioning heating system. Regular furnace inspections reduce the chances of safety hazards, such as carbon monoxide or gas leaks. This inspection can help you confirm that your home is safe from carbon monoxide poisoning.

 

At the same time, regular maintenance can help you keep the space around the heating system free from clutter and debris. Clearing out household items close to the furnace and above the return vents and air ducts can reduce the risk of dangerous fires. 

Igniting a Warm and Safe Winter Season 

Investing in furnaces can benefit your home, especially during the sub-zero seasons. However, it’s crucial to conduct regular maintenance to avoid fire hazards and gas leaks while ensuring a longer lifespan for your furnace.
